Abstract

In the period November 1989 - June 1990 measurements were carried out at two windturbines, which have been installed within the framework of the Integral Program Wind energy (IPW). The collected data are necessary to assess the performance of the turbines, and to determine to what extent the expectations heve been fullfilled. The wind turbines measured are a LW (Lagerwey Windturbine) 15/75 kW in Zijpe, Netherlands, and a WM (WindMaster) 25/300 kW in Urk, Netherlands. The measurements concern the energy yield and the local wind field, the power curves, a continuous registration of several status signals by which interruption frequencies and interruption periods can be recorded in order to determine the availability of the turbines, and finally a comparison of real and calculated performance data. A data acquisition system recorded wind speed, wind directions, atmospheric pressures, ambient temperatures, electric power capacity, speed of the rotor, and the status signals (operational conditions of the wind turbines at a certain moment). The main conclusions are that the power curve data appear to be lower than the measured data. The same goes for the calculated energy yield compared to the measured energy yield. The availability of the wind is the same for the  More>>

The availability of the turbines is high (>95%), but the availability decreases with increasing wind velocity. 17 figs., 7 tabs., 1 app., 6 refs.}
